Wray Cleave Bluebell Walk, Moretonhampstead, Dartmoor National Park

Wray Cleave Bluebell Walk, Moretonhampstead, Dartmoor National Park

Grab a copy of the Ordnance Survey Explorer OL28 'Dartmoor' map. Follow the Wray Valley south east of Moretonhampstead and you'll see Pepperdon Down above Steward Wood, Wray Barton and Wray Cleave. There's limited parking available at the top of Pepperdon Down along the side of the road. Start from here.

Follow the path that runs across Pepperdon Down as marked on the Ordnance Survey map. You'll come to a skinny moorland road. A farm track branches off this road and a path then takes you across a field to the top of Wray Cleave. Drop down into the woods. Very obvious paths descend to the valley floor. The bluebells are best in the lower section of Wray Cleave.

Follow the path marked on the Ordnance Survey map that skirts the western edge of Wray Cleave towards Wray Barton before looping back up to the top of the woods. Note that it's a steep climb from valley floor to the top. Retrace your steps across the field and Pepperdon Down to where you started.
